What Is a Receivership?What Is a Receivership?

Receivership is a legal process where a court appoints a “receiver” to take control, manage, and potentially liquidate a company’s assets or operations, often in situations of financial distress or misconduct. Receiverships are commonly linked with regulatory enforcement actions (SEC, FTC, CFTC, and OFR) and Ponzi schemes but also include business disputes in state court that result in the appointment of receivers.

Regulatory Enforcement Actions

Our attorneys are adept at handling receiverships arising out of actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC). We have served as both receivers and counsel to receivers in these cases, diligently working to protect the receiver’s interests and ensure the proper administration of assets.

State Court Receiverships

Receiverships are an equitable alternative to bankruptcy wherein a state court appoints a third party neutral – a receiver – and gives the receiver authority to sell or otherwise liquidate assets for the benefit of creditors. Our attorneys serve as receivers and counsel to receivers in state court proceedings and are adept at handling the myriad of complex issues that often arise in the receivership context.

Ponzi Schemes

Navigating the complexities of Ponzi scheme-related receiverships demands a unique set of skills and extensive experience. Our team is equipped to manage and liquidate properties and assets associated with such schemes while ensuring effective communication with defrauded investors.

Clawback Litigation and Claims Process

A significant part of our receivership practice involves the prosecution of the receiver’s legal claims, ensuring that all parties involved are treated fairly according to the law. Additionally, we have experience in the administration of the claims process associated with disbursing funds to claimant creditors.
